Frequently Asked Questions 

Learn How it Works!

Do you make accommodations for food allergies or dietary restrictions?

Please know that we are NOT an allergy-free or nut-free facility. Remember, while the recipes can be modified, we are not an allergy-free facility for modified ingredients. We do, however, have the ability to cater an entire event to accommodate different dietary needs/restrictions, including gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and vegan. For the safety of the child with allergies, individual adjustments cannot be made at an event. There is an additional charge for dietary modifications. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns. 

When should I arrive for my child’s birthday party?

The kitchen will be set-up and ready for you 10 minutes before.  If you arrive earlier, you should wait outside until the doors are unlocked as our staff is preparing for the event.

Is gratuity included in the price?

Gratuity is at your discretion for our hard-working culinary team.  There is an option on the booking form or if you prefer to tip at the event, cash tips are appreciated.  Unless you have a bar tab, you will not be able to tip on a credit card at the event.

How do we sign the mandatory waivers? How are waivers for our party guests handled?

Due to our insurance requirements, executed waivers are required for guest participation. You will receive a clickable link in your confirmation email directing you to our online smart waiver or you can visit the forms with this link. Please note that we do run on a tight schedule, and prefer to not handle waivers at the studio. The waiver must be signed by A PARENT for all minors (no caretakers of any kind may execute a waiver for a minor). If any guests have not completed a waiver, they will not be able to participate in the event. If you are hosting a party, please help as best you can to insure that your guest’s waivers are completed in advance.

Can I bring decorations, themed paper goods, and my own birthday cake for a party?

We will provide a table for gifts and you may decorate however you wish.  You may bring balloons.  Please do not attach anything to our walls.  As the children are working on the tables, no tabletop decorations are permitted.  We provide the children with plates and silverware to eat what they create. You may bring an outside birthday cake and themed paper plates if you’d like.  We will provide traditional birthday candles. Our team will prepare the birthday blowout and cut and serve the cake. We do offer an option for the children to decorate cupcakes instead of a birthday cake, a fun activity that we strongly recommend. They are here to cook and bake, after all!  If you are bringing a cake, you must bring it with you the day of the event.  We do not have storage to hold cakes in our refrigerators.  

What is your cancellation/rescheduling/no show policy?
All sales are final and non-refundable. There are no exceptions. Budding Chef will not be held responsible for no shows, last minute emergencies and unforeseen circumstances, including illness. Deposits apply to the date and time booked; they are not transferable to a new date and/or time. Changing your event date and/or time will require a new deposit. Your balance due will be charged 5-days prior to your event based on the final headcount.
What should kids wear?

Keep those piggies covered! Closed-toe shoes are preferred, and ponytails or hair pulled back. We will have aprons available, but kids should wear comfortable clothing that can get messy.

Can I bring outside food/drinks for chaperones?

Outside food and beverage is not permitted.  We have appetizers available for purchase for your chaperones. We offer a beverage station with iced tea, lemonade, or fruit-infused water, for an additional charge. We also have wine and beer available for purchase. If you would like to provide wine or beer to your chaperones, a cash bar is always available, you may purchase drink tickets in advance or we can run a tab for the entire event. 

What if my guests arrive late?

Unfortunately, we cannot wait for late arrivals.  Our kitchen and staff is reserved for a certain timeframe and we do run back to back events so the show must go on!  We will start and end on time irregardless of latecomers.
